Thankful in November!

I'm thinking that a good time was had by many couples last year for Valentine's Day...November was a busy month for births! I am SO thankful I have the opportunity to support families through one of the most memorable times of their lives...The birth of a child! There were three of them born within five days and I was one busy doula!

Lara describes her labor as the one she'd always dreamed of and for that, she is very thankful! You were SO strong and hung in there the whole way! Congratulations...She is beautiful! Meet little Miss Olivia...

For a little guy who kept wanting to come early, he waited until one day past his estimated due date to make his amazing entrance. When he decided to come, he wasted no time and gave his mommy a quick labor! Here's Grayson...

The very next day I found myself in the same labor and delivery room as the day before. Mom laboring in the same tub, labor going in a similar manner...FAST! Let's just say this little guy came in such a way that will be quite memorable to everyone who had the privilege to witness his birth! Here's Wyatt...
